MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAMME


The International School offers the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) which is the next step in the IB continuum of international education. The MYP builds on the foundations acquired in Elementary school, encouraging students to become independent, internationally minded, and lifelong learners.

All of our students receive a rich curriculum which is comprehensive and challenging, helping students build a strong foundation in the major subject areas as well as several foreign languages. Skills are developed alongside knowledge, and the students become thoughtful, creative and valuable members of the International and Italian communities. Our educators are caring and experienced and are aware that students in this age group need security, support and success.

CURRICULUM


Our aim is to deliver an International Education and at the same time, as for the primary school, we provide the important elements of the Italian State Curriculum. In these three years of middle school we take the Italian Scuola Media Programme and integrate it into the MYP programme so that Italian students are prepared for the end-of-year State Italian Exams which they invariably do superbly well in. Our international students in the main do not sit the Italian state examinations unless they wish to.


The MYP curriculum is organised around eight traditional subject areas:
 
  • Arts: Art, Music and Drama
  • Individuals & Societies: History and Geography
  • Language & Literature: English and Italian (Mother Tongue Teachers)
  • Language Acquisition: French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin. 
    (German to be introduced in September 2018 in Grade 7)
  • Mathematics: Mathematics
  • Physical & Health Education: Physical Education
  • Science: Integrated Sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Physics
  • Design: Product Design
 
There are 27.5 hours of lesson time weekly, plus extra time for Individual Tutoring, Enrichment Activities or Library. Some subjects have double lessons. There is a full and varied after-school and lunchtime programme with activities including Music, Sports, Drama, an extensive range of personal interest clubs and homework supervision for an hour after school on most days.
